Brace yourselves for remodeling

This site is difficult to use on a cellphone, Google said. The print shows up as tiny, the links are too close together, problems were found all over the blog in 307 posts of technically defective material … yadda, yadda, yadda.

We’re back!

Thank you for your patience! 🙂 You may have noticed – or not, and that’s okay, too – we’ve been gone since right before the year-end holidays.

What the heck happened?

My access to write and post articles here to The Horsey Set Net crashed. (To you WordPressers, I couldn’t access my dashboard.)

For readers, nothing was amiss. You could search and read the blog and have no idea, except the dateline on that previous post, that something was amiss.

I couldn’t figure out what went wrong. I tried to repair it, but the problem was way over my head, basically deep in the wiring of the blog.

Even worse? I couldn’t reach any of you loyal readers to tell you we were having technical difficulties.

I sent out hails to my various brain trusts; i.e., writer’s groups.

What’s up here?

You may have noticed I haven’t been posting as often as I was. I’m so grateful to you all for reading and subscribing, so you should know a bit of what’s been going on. Several of my writer pals have stopped blogging. Perhaps you’ve wondered if I stopped, too?

No way.

Update on The Book

Happy Birthday to us!

Happy 5th birthday to us! When The Horsey Set Net first went live in late July 2008, I had no idea what I’d be blogging about, as this first post indicates.

Back then, the Olympics were just about to begin in Beijing, except we horsey folk were paying particular attention to the action in Hong Kong, where the equestrian competitions took place. The World Equestrian Games, slated for American soil for the first time ever, loomed ahead in 2010 like a shiny city of dreams.

Have we had fun since then, or what? 😉 Harry Potter in “Equus.” Zenyatta Mania. Falling in love with Joey in both incarnations of “War Horse.” Living the Derby dream each and every year since.
